Exorcist 4.1 to be released...

Paul "American Gigalo" Schrader was originally hired to direct the recent bombtastic prequel Exorcist: The Beginning. Dubbing the film "unwatchable," the studio then hired Renny Harlin--which has to rank as the most dire insult in history--to reshoot the film.

That version came and went without 'scaring up' (HAHAHAHAHAHA!) barely anything at the box office, so now, apparently aware that they've little to lose, they will give the Schrader version a limited theatrical release starting this month.

If I were to guess, I think they are generating as much publicity as they can before releasing the DVD, which I would expect will (in some version or other) pair the two films so as to hopefully draw curiosity seekers.
